Acumen IT / The Southeast Leader in IT


Acumen IT was established in 1999 in Greenville, SC, serving local businesses in both IT support and SQL Server programming. Today, Acumen IT has grown to become one of the largest technology companies in the Southeast, operating four (4) distinct business units that provide IT solutions and services to a broad range of industries. Our passion is helping companies intelligently apply technology in a way that solves business problems, increases productivity, and maximizes profitability.

A Competitive Edge

A competitive edge is achieved when an organization acquires or develops an attribute that allows it to outperform its competitors. To survive in today’s challenging marketplace, companies must find new ways to leverage technology to improve the efficiency and productivity of their businesses.
Your data… and the systems that collect, manage, and protect your data… are at the core of your business operations. The better your systems are designed to support your business strategy and processes, the more effectively you can improve business performance and manage growth.

Our Mission

Acumen IT leverages technology to materially improve the performance and health of our clients’ businesses.

Acumen IT specializes in helping companies automate and integrate business processes and technology to streamline operations, work more efficiently, reduce costs, and enable growth. Acumen IT’s goal is to help our clients “accelerate their business” by empowering their people to be more productive, work more efficiently, have access to the information they need to make informed business decisions, accomplish measurable results, and take their business to the next level.

Offering a unique combination of industry-leading technology products and professional consulting services, Acumen IT helps companies of all sizes address their most complex business challenges.
Today, Acumen IT delivers technology-centric solutions in six arenas:

  • Outsourced and co-sourced management of your entire IT infrastructure for maximum security, availability, accuracy, and speed
  • Planning, execution, and management of IT projects of all shapes and sizes, including enterprise and campus networking, Wi-Fi & mobility, converged systems and storage infrastructure design/deployment, cloud migrations, server virtualization, data center moves, hardware/software/network refreshes, etc.
  • Retained Team Technical Director model enables our clients to work collaboratively with Acumen IT’s experienced IT leadership to collaboratively analyze IT requirements and compose and publish a 3-year IT roadmap and budget that provides the maximum Return On Investment (ROI) on IT spend.
  • World-class disaster backup and business continuity solutions that allow businesses to continue to operate in the face of any natural, technical, or cyber disaster

At some point in the lifecycle of every growing company, aging IT systems become a bottleneck to profitable growth. Organizations can either address that reality before it becomes an impediment to success… or after it is too late. We help companies avoid that eventuality rather than deal with the aftermath.
